MLS Preview: D.C. United - New England Revolution


These two Northeast foes link up in mean times, with New England making the trip down to D.C. riding a nine-game winless streak.


D.C. United (4-4-2): Hamid; Kitchen, White, McDonald, Woolard; Najar, Simms, De Rosario, Pontius; Davies, Wolff.


OUT: MF Branko Boskovic (L ACL tear); MF Brandon Barklage (concussion); DF Devon McTavish (concussion); MF Santino Quaranta (concussion); DF Jed Zayner (L knee sprain)

QUESTIONABLE: DF Marc Burch (R hamstring strain)

PROBABLE: DF Dejan Jakovic (L hamstring strain); FW Josh Wolff (L hamstring strain)

New England Revolution (4-4-2): Reis; Alston, Cochrane, Soares, Barnes; Boggs, Joseph, Phelan, Tierney; Lekic, Mansally.


OUT: FW Kheli Dube (whiplash)

PROBABLE: DF Kevin Alston (L hamstring tightness); MF Zak Boggs (L high ankle sprain); DF Ryan Cochrane (L foot pain); DF Chris Tierney (L hamstring tightness)

  • Though D.C. United edges the all-time record (25 wins to 22, with eight draws), the Revolution has won the four last encounters.

  • D.C. is unbeaten in five, and last week posted its first back-to-back clean sheets since August 2009.
  • After extending his stay for two more games, midfielder Fred will be available against New England, which will be his last MLS match before joining A-League side Melbourne Victory.
  • New England is in the midst of a nine-game winless run and lost 3-0 to the Philadelphia Union last weekend. "I think the first half is about worse as I've been here," coach Steve Nicol said of that match. "It was like watching a bunch of schoolboys." New England didn't register a shot, a first for the club since September, 2009.
  • Benny Feilhaber will not be available after collecting two yellow cards against the Union. However, captain Shalrie Joseph is back in contention after missing out due to yellow-card accumulation against Philly.
  • The Revs have room to make some moves, after releasing Didier Domi and seeing Ousmane Dabo retire this week.
